Dearly Beloved, I am Lady Morgana Green, suffering from cancerous ailment. I was married to Sir Green a English shipping tycoon notable for his great wealth, influential extended family, and charitable activities all his life before his death. My husband died after a protracted illness in May 11th, 2008. Our life together as husband and wife lasted for about three decades without a child. My late husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals in the society, as we both had passion for those people who can not help themselves due to physical disability or financial predicament. I can adduce this to the fact that we both needed a Child from this relationship, which never came. When my late husband was alive he invested in stocks the sum of Twenty Million Pounds Sterling (20,000,000.00 GBP), which were derived from his vast investment in capital market with a Security Company here in UK and named me as the sole beneficiary of this trust funds upon his demise.(all records are kept with my family lawyer). Presently, this funds is still with the Security Company. Two weeks ago my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live, due to the cancerous problems that i have been suffering from. Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in addition with the cancer. Hence, with this hard reality that has befallen my family and me, i have decided to donate this funds to you and i want you to use this gift which comes from my late husbands effort to establish a charity home called "Green Charity Foundation" for the upkeep of widows, orphans, destitute, the down- trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially around you, as it is often said that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not want my late husband's hard earned money to be misused or invested into ill perceived ventures. Also i do not want a situation where this funds will be used in a worldly manner, hence my reason for taking this bold decision. I do not need any telephone communication in this regard due to my deteriorating health and because of the presence of my husband relatives around me, as i am currently bedridden in my husband Family house here in England and do not receive any visitors unless approved by my late Husband Brother, my late husband immediate younger brother. I do not want them to know about this development in order to safeguard this bequeath. So, i want you to Contact my family lawyer Barrister Jones Shealy (ESQ) with this specified email address: firstname.lastname@example.org and tell him that I have WILLED this funds to you by quoting my personal reference number Law/chamber/solicitors/rt/sth/WILL/2782892435, as i have earlier authorized him to issue a Letter of Authority in your favor to the Security Company handling this stocks by telling them that I have WILLED this funds to you for a specific purpose and good work. He will also endorse my WILL, where you will be named as the sole beneficiary of this trust funds. Please ensure to provide for him all that he may require to finalize this arrangement, and make sure you maintain a confidential and cordial relationship with him even in my absence, because he is a very trust worthy and caring person. My happiness today is that I lived a life worthy of emulation and i want you to be kindhearted all through your life. Please, assure me that you will act just as I have stated herein, as i hope to hear from him soon that you have contacted him with his personal email address that i have given to you above. Hence, he is currently waiting to receive your reply. your beloved Sister. Lady Morgana Green
